Looking for advice on something I am working on,
a work in progress, feel its missing something, not 100 percent happy with the lighting, tips advice feedback welcome...
made a few changes etc..
personally, i liked the brighter one. the second one feels very heavy, while the first one give a really serine vibe, tranclucid ocean..
my only crit. for the moment is that your jelly-fish is not exactly jelly-ie it seems to be made of very hard material and it's most obvios at its center with those thingies (don't know how they're called).
have u used a reference?
your work seems to go more towards a stylized, um, style? (haven't slept much, english is not my first language so please escuse stupid sentences like this one...) rather then realistic. but it's not there yet, u can get it much more to the extreme i think if that was your intent.
updated version feedback advise welcome
this looks amazing! such a progress from the first ones!
only thing i recommend is to add better, sharper highlights on the jelly-fish head, resulting from those shimerrings - which by the way, are great, and i think you should have a little bit more of them, maybe at the bottom half of the painting or in the jelly-fish itself?
anyway this is great work!
This loks ace, it reminds me of a guy I knew at uni - he was in the year above me. He did a simular piece to this http://arcipello.deviantart.com/art/jelly-56690097
Don't know if that helps to see other's techniques or not. Are you using any reference? I recommend David Attenborough's Blue Planet for inspiration!
